Re: Really fat guppies and peas
I feed my guppies 3-4 times a day. I have about 40 in the tank right now. 5 adults and the rest are fry. In the morning usually 11am I feed them "Omega One Super Color Flakes" which are protein based, then at 3ish they get fed again with BBS. Sometimes at like 6ish I'll feed them some more flakes, but usually they get flakes and BBS anywhere from 9-10pm. They also eat the Cory bottom feeder pellets I throw in the tank, which are vegetable based. I have some TetraVeggie vegetable based food I feed to my Mollies, which I will occasionally give to my guppies. So mostly they eat protein, but they will have vegetables in their diet too.
Your guppies most likely are fat tho because I noticed your signature says you have 2 males. If there are no females in your tank they dont have anything to chase. The only thing with getting females is you will no doubt have tons of baby guppies.
